Thrive’s Youth Development Collaborative has launched a Request for Proposals to build an innovative new virtual platform to support youth and families across Sioux Falls.

Submissions are due by 5 p.m. Oct. 19, 2023 for proposals to design and develop a website that serves as both:

  1. A repository of youth programming descriptions and schedules in Sioux Falls, and

The proposed website launch date is March 1, 2024.

About Sioux Falls Thrive and the YDC

Sioux Falls Thrive’s mission is to ensure all children in the Sioux Falls area have access to the same opportunities to succeed by working to provide stability in three key areas: food security, out-of-school time, and affordable housing. Thrive was created as a community cradle-to-career workforce development initiative in 2017.

Thrive is a volunteer-based organization that harnesses the power of Collective Impact by bringing existing community resources together to work collaboratively. The goal is to kickstart action-based solutions to the issues that inhibit student success. Thrive facilitates the work of collaborative teams and encourages community leaders and existing service providers to think innovatively to solve the most complex issues facing our youth.

As an engagement collaborative of Sioux Falls Thrive, the Youth Development Collaborative (YDC) brings together agencies and individuals serving and advocating for youth to network, stay informed of current community services and programs, and connect positive opportunities for youth to find solutions to identified community issues facing youth in Sioux Falls.
